Sherwood/NAHL West Player of the Week
Johan Skinnars – Kenai River Brown Bears
Kenai River forward Johan Skinnars recorded four assists as the Brown Bears skated to a three-game sweep over Fairbanks. On Thursday, the Sweden native picked up a pair of assists, including one on Jesse Ramsey\’s game-winning goal, in a 3-2 victory. The next night, the 20-year-old tallied two more helpers – one on Raymond Stenehjem\’s game-winner – in another 3-2 triumph over the Ice Dogs. Skinnars, a Sherwood/NAHL Top Prospects Tournament selection who potted the game-winning goal in the Brown Bears\’ 3-2 shootout victory on Saturday, was also a plus-2 on the weekend.
\”Johan was exceptional last weekend,\” Brown Bears head coach Oliver David said. \”He\’s a high-end talent, but, most importantly, he\’s an exceptional team guy.\”
